Dune - Dubstep

Post by katana » Tue Nov 01, 2005 11:59 am

Maybe there are a few out there who played that game "Dune" back in '92. Does anybody remember the sound-track that game had?, which was quite amazing for just using the Adlib-FM-chip. I found it on the web: http://www.grandgent.com/tom/dune/dunemp3s.htm
The main theme sounds somehow dubsteppish to me: "Deep Desert". Maybe somebody likes to make a remix. There are also the midi-files floating around somewhere in the web.

Heavy!

There should be more people who post up useful stuff like this! I seem to remember Dune 2 having a really good soundtrack too. All about old game samples, theres a final fantasy 6 sample in pretty much every one of my tunes :)

I think game music had a HUGE influence on grime and dubstep, especially some of the gameboy stuff, I swear i have heard whole riffs in grime tunes sampled straight from gameboy games

I've used some samples from the 1980's film Dune (ya know the one with sting in it)

but anyone remember the sound tracks to the streets of rage games on the mega drive?

yeah they were deep and all

that film is waste though, still worth sampling of course (some good may come from it still!)

worth it to see stings untimely demise

all about a "word of power" cha remix :lol:

Yes that's true. I got a tune with that classical SuperMario-theme from the NES on some grime flip side. I mean even those square-wave bass-lines everybody is using are sounding a lot like oldschool FM-tunes. I always liked those game-soundtracks a lot. Shinobi on the Sega Game Gear got some nice sound, too.

It's definitely a flawed classic- it's a tough ask to capture all the content & intrigue of the book- but on paper:
  • Directed by David Lynch
    Set design by HR Giger of Alien/Necromonicon infamy (uncredited since he was never paid for his work :evil: )
    Prophecy Theme by Brian Eno- one of my first & formative experiences of being moved by electronic music! Just a shame he didn't do the whole score like Vangelis did with Blade Runner..... (no-one mention Toto's soundtrack :B: )

I think that would have been a addition from Mr Lynch?

The Sci-Fi Channel did a decent Miniseries of Dune & Children of Dune that were closer to the books, but again it's near-impossible to translate everything from them..... would like to see them attempt Heretics & Chapter House, though.

children of dune miniseries actualy is including the story of hereitics...

i feel you that its difficult to make a movie follow a book exactly, but i felt his omisions were many and his additions strange... dif strokes i suppose

The Legends trilogy? Or has Brian Herbert had a go at the fabled Book 7?

The 1st book is Holy to me. I think the film captures the tone of the book in terms of intensity and the subtle communications but is still a bit messy. Really influential when I was a kid though, especially the Brian Eno theme. Epic.
